Badani Earns CASP Certification

Abbas Badani, director of Penn State's Multimedia and Print Center (MPC), has earned the Certified Auxiliary Services Professional (CASP) designation. Awarded by the National Association of College Auxiliary Services (NACAS), the CASP designation recognizes auxiliary services professionals who have demonstrated a high standard of excellence in the industry.

CASP is a four-year certification program that affirms recipients' expertise in management, leadership, marketing, student development, and operations. Recipients of the CASP certification have proven they have the skills necessary to be a director of auxiliary services.

"CASP is the premier designation for higher education auxiliary and ancillary services. It demonstrates that the recipients have the skills necessary to be successful in our industry, meeting an advanced standard of expertise," says Kelsey Harmon Finn, CEO of NACAS.

The organization provides opportunities for members to share ideas, develop business solutions, enhance programs and revenues, and develop meaningful professional relationships.
